    That was quick. Wonder what changed their minds.

    • Gary Robert

      I made a call

      • David F

        WWE might have had lawsuit on their hands for wrongful termination

        • Gary Robert

          I don’t think that’s the case. WWE can cut people for whatever reason they want. They can do it for simply not having any creative ideas.

  • Bob’s Diner

    What the what now???
    Talk about bizarro…

  • Simon Veitch

    Don’t think I’ve ever seen WWE back flip this quickly, let alone with a release. Wonder who got in Vinces ear to undo it all

  • Splash

    Turn it into a gimmick! Have her steal things from other superstars and divas! What the hell why not!

    • Bob’s Diner

      That would be hilarious – and couldn’t be any worse than the stupid dance

    • Splat

      With Zeb Colter investigating trying to catch her in the act and trying to get her deported.

  • Patrick

    this went faster then Daniel Bryan’s fireing and being re-hired months later do to the Tie incident.

  • Mysterion

    I know it’s a long shut but could WWE have maybe seen the fans dismay at her release and the fact they kept guys like Swagger, Hardy, Austin, RVD, most of the attitude era guys, Orton and many others on the books for much bigger violations of both the law and company policy? As I said, long shot but you never know.

  • John

    Bush league type move from a major corporation! Obviously realised that Dashwood could’ve sued them.

    • wwe rules

      she couls not have sued them, Einstein. wwe rehired her because if they fire her ass for one offense then it is only fair to treat other talent the same way. pro wrestlers are like cattle.

  • Anon

    Looks like the IWC BO-lieved strongly enough to get her back

  • Splat

    The good news is she got her job back. The bad news is she ain’t winning a match for along time. I see a Aksana type losing streak in her future.

  • Charlie Crimefighter Hovey

    This is what’s best for business..

  • The Breaker

    Well… okay. That was bizarre. Long live the EMMAlution!

  • Paul Jameson

    Voldemort actually is in an open relationship with both Emma and AJ….and thus vinnie had to reinstate her to keep trying to get him back?! Wait, this isn’t the 90s anymore…..this is truly a headscratcher.

  • Tom Mayer

    Appropriate action for her violation against the law…. They fired her before investigating the situation.. Since when are they judge, jury and executioner?

    I am sure they mean depushed to hell.

    • Simon Veitch

      I didn’t think it got much more de-pushed than partnering with Santino as comedic relief anyway?

  • King James

    This is the first time I’ve ever seen this. I’m glad they changed their minds. She can offer a lot to the company. Maybe send her down to NXT to grow up a little, but she is an asset.

    • Simon Veitch

      If nothing else repackage her. Such a tremendous talent that isn’t being utilised with her current gimmick

  • Venom

    I guess she beat .the Boogeymans record. He was released and I think a few days later decided to rehire him again and had further training at Booker Ts school.

  • Vic Jose

    I think they realized it was a mistake she made and not a major crime, they over reacted.

  • BIG M

    As an Aussie myself I’m just glad no-ones made any silly old convict jokes about her yet.

    • Simon Veitch

      As another Aussie myself, I would not be even remotely surprised if that’s her next character knowing Vince’s sad sense of humour

  • Trapdoor

    Wouldn’t bother clicking the link, as it takes you to WWE site, saying near enough the same thing, with a(nother) link to WWE Network for more info.

    If you’re scanning your own things and checking yourself out it can be easy to overlook things. I double check. I pick up the bags and my purse and check my buggy. If the case was loose in the buggy it was probably an honest mistake but if it made its way into a bag it may not have been such an accident. Does anyone know if it had been bagged or maybe laying loose in the buggy such as under her purse? That’s what I would like to know.
